PGE Energia Odnawialna from the PGE Group is conducting a tender procedure for the construction of a 7 MW PV farm in Pokrzywnica, the company announced. The solar installation will be built near Ostrołęka. This is another investment that the company will launch in the next year in Mazovia.
“The Pokrzywnica PV installation, consisting of approx. monocrystalline panels with a power of not less than 500 W each, will be built by the end of May 2024 on a plot of approx. 9 ha. Thanks to the installation of bifacial modules that absorb light on both sides, the efficiency of the installation will be higher by several percent compared to the existing power plants. According to preliminary assumptions, the production of energy from the new farm will amount to nearly 7,400 MWh, which will meet the energy needs of approximately 3,500 households,” reads the release.
“In total, by the end of 2023, the PGE Group will have approx. 500 MW of installed capacity in PV installations that will be fully built or will be under construction. This process will continue in the coming years. Already today, the company has secured about 3,000 ha of land for investment purposes, on which solar farms with a capacity of over 2 GW can be built,” we read further.
